Published:

With budgets being tightened in organisations across the UK, employers have been warned staff could rebel if they do not have a Christmas party this year, new research reveals.

According to a poll by Outsourced Events, 60% still want some form of Christmas event provided by their employer with 85% claiming this form of reward for hard work is ‘essential' for morale.

More than half (55%) think their employer should spend at least £31 per head and 8% think £100 per head is the right budget for Christmas.

But 23% think no money will be spent on Christmas at all, even though 26% think a Chritsmas part is essential regardless of budget restraints.

More than a third (38%) would like an extra day off at Christmas in lieu of a Christmas do, 29% would appreciate a team lunch and 3.5% would even like to go to their boss's house for a party.
